New reports from Corriere della Sera claim that Mauro Icardi’s agent is reportedly requesting €9M per season for his new contract.
Wanda Icardi, the Argentine’s wife and agent is requesting to double the international star’s wages to make him one of the highest paid athletes in Italy.
There still remains a €110M release clause in his current contract which is valid for the first two weeks of July. In today’s market, that price tag is too low considering the quality of the lethal striker.
The club wants to remove that, but so far there has been no breakthrough on an improved deal.
According to today’s Corriere della Sera, agent Wanda Icardi is asking Inter for €9M per season, and for the release clause to be raised but not removed. This could complicate negotiations.
However, Inter have no leverage and the striker and his agent have the upper hand, as Real Madrid are thought to be interested in activating his release clause.
